I can not believe how much time has passed since Thanksgiving. It is unbelievable how fast time flies and I just now realized that next week is the week before Christmas. So, if baby Jack does not arrive before next week, I have deemed it as baking week. I think every afternoon nap time, I might just grab my apron. Kraft has this incredible recipe called Chocolate Cookie Bark. I made this for my Sunday school leaders last year and they all asked for the recipe. This is always a good sign! Make some and tell me what you think! :)
My neighbor, Merry Lynn, just had her baby last Thursday and it was so exciting to hold her baby boy, Travis. He is so adorable and sweet. Both of our babies are and will be around 3 weeks apart. It is so neat to have developed a relationship with her and God giving each other as a support system.
My husband has been so awesome lately. I am at the point where I am limited on what I can do. Not only do I still have the pelvic pressure still, if I do too much contractions come back. So, he has been cleaning house, christmas shopping, running all my errands....basically taking care of my nesting urges. I am so grateful and blessed for his love language of service.
My little man is officially 17 months and he has been cracking me up. He has learned how to "meow" like a cat and I love it. However, he thinks every animal makes this noise, so I am trying to correct that. What does a dog say? "Meow" What does a monkey say? "Meow" What does a cow say? "Meow" Last week he was standing at our back door pointing, saying "meow". He was so emphatic about it that I walked over, looking for a cat, and saw a squirell. I guess that looks close enough to a cat, right?
The baby sign language is finally taking effect! The only thing is that now that he knows the sign for "hungry" he likes to do that all day. He does not quite appreciate not getting food when he asks, but what am I to do? The child is going to turn into a giant goldfish.
He has learned how to climb into chairs, on the couch, on the fireplace and his new adventure is trying to scale our gates that we just put up. All boy I tell you, all boy. The one thing that I love lately is that he is all about hugs kisses and sitting in my lap. I am soaking all this in because that could change in a few weeks.
Here are my favorite pics as of late...
